Background: Accurate predictions of distant metastasis (DM) in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) patients receiving neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) are helpful in developing appropriate treatment plans. This study aimed to perform DM prediction through deep learning radiomics.
Methods: We retrospectively sampled 235 patients receiving nCRT with the minimum 36 months' postoperative follow-up from three hospitals. Read More
